On this page, you will find 25 scary zombie coloring pages that are all free to download and print! The idea for this post came from my two young boys, who love to dress up as zombies during Halloween. They even start getting in character a few days beforehand so they can pull off their most convincing walking dead!
For this series, I illustrated many styles and types of zombies with lots of Halloween themes that I think will appeal to all ages and skill levels. Included are zombies coming out of graves, zombie heads with brains showing, girl zombies, realistic-looking zombies, and even a Roblox zombie, to name a few!
To use any of these free printables, you can click on any of the below images or links to open the high-resolution PDF on a new page. From there, you can freely download or print to your heart’s content!
All these PDF coloring pages are on standard US letter size, but they also fit perfectly onto A4 paper sizes! Enjoy!
10 Craft Ideas To Do With Zombie Coloring Pages
Here are 10 inexpensive, fun, and creative craft ideas you can do with your completed coloring page!
10. Halloween Cards
Take my zombie coloring pages and turn them into Halloween greeting cards.
Rescale the image so that it takes up half or a quarter of a typical 8.5 x 11” piece of paper (you can do this using a word processor), print it out, and fold it accordingly.
Then you can have your kids (or your classroom) color them in and write messages on the outside and inside.
9. Ghoulish Invitations
If your little one is having a zombie-themed birthday party or you’re throwing a family-friendly Halloween party, get the kids in on the invitation creation.
Print off as many invitations as you’ll need and get the kids coloring (you might want to start a few weeks in advance).
You can put the illustration in the top-left corner of the page so that after you print it off, you’ll fold it twice to create a little “booklet” card.
Then you can write all the details for the party on the inside (where, when, RSVP by, etc.), or you can type it into the bottom-right corner of the page so that it’s inside when you fold.
8. Party Decorations
Liven up any ghoulish party with my zombie pages as decorations!
You could color in five or six, cut them out, and string them together to make festive bunting.
Or you could cut them out and use them as food markers or place setting décor.
Or you could even just color in the illustrations, frame them and hang them on the wall somewhere unexpected, like the bathroom or the hallway.
7. Gift Bag Decorations
Add some freakish fun to a plain gift bag by adding one or two of my zombies.
Get a green or black gift bag (these can be found on the cheap at the dollar store) and some glue.
You’re going to color in one or two zombies, depending on if you want to decorate both sides of the bag or just one.
Cut out the figures and glue them onto the sides of the bag, making sure the glue goes all the way to the edges and pressing down tightly.
Once that’s dry, you can bag up the gift and use black and green tissue paper on top!
6. Stand-Up Figures
Using toilet paper rolls as reinforcement, you can turn my zombies into “action” figures.
Have your kids pick out which zombies they want, color them in, and cut them out.
You might want to trace the figures onto cardstock and cut that out, too, then glue the two pieces together (for extra durability).
Then you’re going to glue the zombie figures to the toilet paper rolls. They’re a perfect size because they’re tall enough to hold the paper figures upright.
Find a zombie illustration where the face is head-on and, if necessary, enlarge it so that it will fit your child’s face.
Have your child color in the zombie’s face and then cut out the head.
You’re going to make holes where the eyes are – you can use a pen or scissors to start the holes and then enlarge them.
Then you’re going to make two holes on either side of the zombie’s head and tie string from both ends, which you will then use to secure the mask to your child’s face.
If you don’t have access to a printer where you can print off enlarged images, you can also get your kids to make headbands out of my zombie illustrations.
You’ll just have them color in a zombie figure or face and then cut it out.
Then you’ll take strips of construction paper and loop them together – this is the headband.
You’ll paste, staple, or even tape the zombie to the headband, and your child can wear it, pretending to be a brain-eating creature back from the dead!
3. Zombie Clothespins
You’re going to take one of my zombie coloring pages where the zombie’s head is on the smaller side and have your little one color in just the head.
Then your little one (or you, if they’re really little) will cut out the head and cut across the top of the zombie’s head.
Next, you’ll need a little scrap of pink construction paper – you’re going to make “brains” out of it.
Then you’re going to glue the brains down, plus the larger part of the zombie’s head onto the bottom side of the clothespin and the top of the head on the top part.
So now, when you press on the clothespin, it reveals the zombie’s brains!
For this craft, you will need shrink sheets, which you can purchase online at Amazon.
Print off the zombie illustration of your kids’ choice onto the shrink sheets and have them color in the figures with markers.
Cut them out and place them on a baking sheet; bake per the instructions. When they’re completely cooled, you can hot glue little round or square magnets to the backs.
1. Paper Bag Puppets
You’ll need brown paper lunch bags to make these paper bag puppets.
Pick a full-body zombie illustration where all four limbs are fully visible. Your kids are going to color it in and then cut it out, separating the arms, legs, torso, and head.
Onto the brown paper bag, they’re going to paste the torso; and on the flap (the bottom of the bag), they’re going to paste the head.
Then they can attach the arms and legs.
The idea is that they can put their hands up through the bag and make the zombie move and “talk” by manipulating the flap.
